site feed fixed

Wednesday, April 6th, 2005

I don’t know exactly what was wrong before, but the site feed is finally fixed. If you’re using Firefox, you should see the little site feed icon on the status bar, and you can use that to add the feed to your bookmarks. Otherwise you can get the feed at The “site feed” link at the bottom of the page works too.

in the news

There have been a couple of times now when people from news organizations have been in touch with me about things I’ve posted on the blog. A couple of weeks ago I was contacted by a reporter from the Newhouse News Service about a post from ages ago on Toby’s first parent-teacher conference at daycare, so that I could contribute to an article. Of course only a small part of what I said was actually used, but it’s kind of fun to be in the papers. Here’s the story.

new stuff

You may notice a different address in the title bar. That’s because I’ve finally got this on a real server. I hope it makes things a little easier to navigate.

I’ve also just put a whole load of new Toby photos up. We (Emma and I) used iPhoto for the first time to get the photos all together and captioned. Again, I hope that the navigation is OK. And of course that you like the pictures themselves.

Finally, a little Toby story. He’s pretty good about saying thank you to people, even if they’re not around. For example if he’s playing with someone’s toys, and you say, “please say thank you for using n’s toys” he’ll say “Thank you, n!”. Tonight we had Chinese food for supper. Afterwards while he was taking a bath, I asked Toby if he enjoyed his food, and told him that it was Chinese food. He said “Thanks, Chinee!”.
